I have been a bald man for 20 years. I actually look similar to George from Seinfeld. I work in a large office and I do not want to show up one day with a full head of hair. Is there any way I can have the hair transplant broken up into different appointments so that my transplant is not too shocking?

Yes, it is possible to break up a hair transplant procedure into several smaller procedures; however, since the hair that grows in occurs in such a subtle manner we generally recommend to do as much as possible in a single procedure. This also allows the patient to go through a lesser number of procedures to reach their desired goal.

If, however, a patient insists on multiple small procedures, that is certainly possible and would probably be less noticeable to friends and colleagues.
